Kelly Duke, President | Recruiter
I am a recruiting expert with 15 years specializing in the engineering, manufacturing and AEC industries. I’ve owned Kelly Duke Staffing LLC® since 2015. Prior to this, I worked 10 years for another recruiting firm where I specialized in engineering, manufacturing and AEC industries. My passion for engineering and manufacturing is because 1) engineers are wicked SMART 2) engineers are FUNNY 3) engineering like to explain and talk about what they do, and they don’t make you feel dumb. You’ll see a common thread in this bio about me. I love to learn, especially when it comes to science. Give me a journal or put someone in front of me who wants to talk, and I will listen earnestly.
I love recruiting because I’m able to really understand people, know what drives them, what makes them laugh, cry and see them through many seasons of their life. See, recruiting isn’t a one-time thing. You are able to connect with them for many years down road. I’m lucky enough to connect with candidates and clients with whom I’ve connected with 15 years ago. I mean, there aren’t many jobs where you can do that!
My driving force is to help candidates and companies, be a resource for them and even if I can’t help now, I will one day. I want them to respect, value and trust me since we will be connected for a very long time.
Prior to recruiting, I worked in healthcare administration for 10 years. I enjoyed healthcare because the human body and science is fascinating and when you couple those with patients and doctors, well, you have the perfect storm. Like Engineers, I could listen to Doctors and Physical Therapists talk for days about treatments and procedures.
